We know quality cherries from tree to table
- Tree – Our growers are some of the most experienced and advanced in the industry, selecting rootstocks and varieties to produce the best quality fruit at the right time.
- Harvest – All our cherries are handpicked at peak maturity and cooled as quickly as possible.
- Temperature – We ensure that all bins are covered with shade cloth immediately after harvest. We then hydro cool all of our cherries to remove the field heat and pack the cherries using hydro cooled 34° water – with cold air palletizing and forced air cooling when necessary.
- Quality Assurance – By utilizing the best technology available to determine brix and firmness, we are able to consistently provide the highest quality fruit to the consumer. Distribution – Our state of the art facility allows for quick access to product so fresh-packed cherries can be on the road within 24 hours of harvest to ensure the best eating experience available.
